The funding round, consisting of a blend of equity and debt, boasts participation from investors, including Speedinvest, Daphni, 212, Blockchain Founders Fund, Unpopular Ventures, Endeavor Catalyst, and the angel investor Scott Sandell from NEA.

Founded by Idriss Al Rifai, Flow48 is dedicated to addressing the challenges faced by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in obtaining working capital financing.
